Because of the grand success of last spring’s Beginning Digital Illustration workshop in Washington, DC we have decided to offer the class for a 2nd time this coming March.

This special 4-day workshop will allow participants who are just starting to explore digital techniques to grow their skills using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. The workshop will begin with inspirational demonstrations using the tools available in both software programs, a discussion of their inherent differences, and the pros and cons to consider when deciding which platform will best suit your creative needs.

Each session will led by a professional digital illustrator whose goal is to help you, the participant, gain a fundamental understanding of the digital interface, become familiar with and comfortable using the various palettes and tools, and learn how to digitally enhance, manipulate and create your own artwork using the Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop platforms.

The workshop will utilize the National Museum of Natural History’s Computer Lab for Learning, a state-of-the-art lab equipped with 16 Dell PCs, a projection system, and wireless Internet access. (Arrangements for space and connectivity can also be made if you prefer to bring your own laptop.)
